Recently, I realized that there is a name for this type of drawing...Zendoodles or Zentangles! I'm not into the whole "Zen" thing, but I love the designs and the detail of these drawings. I have to say it's pretty addicting. The idea is to just doodle without giving it much thought, however, I'm one of those perfectionists so I sketch mine out with pencil before outlining. Here are the projects I've been working on the past couple weeks. I've started using Sakura Art Markers for outlining and filling in. They are a lot easier to use than the mechanical pen which is really fine and tends to clog on me all the time.
The next one is filled in with watercolor pencils giving it a soft watercolor look.
This is my first mandala...almost finished with a second larger one that is getting colored in with markers and a blending pen. Coming soon!
